Didn't we call the Opel Gt a mini "vette ? They sure were cute.

I did some of my learning to drive in one. My dad worked at a Buick dealership and he brought them home. I will never forget one with the cast aluminum Thrush side pipes that we took on a beautiful drive out to the valley to fish. We drove it thru the most beautiful winding roads in this area, I got some good lessons driving a manual transmission in those cars.

In talking with the guy with the Alpine and Sunbeam, it's for sale too.......$6000. With the two of them it would be a time consuming though pretty easy restoration, a nice Tiger brings $50-80K DAMN this is tempting but I need my head examined for even thinking about it! HIT ME PLEASE!

Is it a Tiger or an Alpine? A Tiger clone might not bring as much as a true Tiger.

He has the 1960 Alpine I am buying and a 65 Tiger Mk1A with the original 260. He wants $6,000 for the Tiger. Sorry I see what I said in the last post, "Alpine and Sunbeam" I meant "Alpine and Tiger".

Ah go ahead Brian. We will start a thread on who can build the rustiest car in 12 years or less.

I had to take my wife to get a mameogram this morning and by the time I got my nap in I really didn't want to get skungy dirty. Tonight is cruise night at the Sonic so I thought I would piddle with my sand blast cabinet. It has not been working very well. I believe I have found a clue.



There was no excuse for this. I even had a new tip. Let's go to the Sonic....

You know, I suspect that if it is a numbers matching car, even being rusty it will bring that AS IS. I am no expert but I suspect it would be money invested not spent.

Look at it this way, You would own one of the few cars David doesn't have.

Brian,
You are about to end up in the same boat as my best friend. He had about 4 project cars, a finished 33 Ford. He is selling cars to build a garage so he can build the cars he had to sell to build the garage.

John, there's nothing wrong with that nozzle that a couple wraps of duct tape won't fix....
